Iker Casillas of Spain and Real Madrid has officially announced his retirement on Tuesday after almost a year of playing his last match. The 39-year-old's agreement was with Portugal's Club Porto, but he did not participate in a competitive match after a heart attack in May last year. Casillas wrote on Twitter, "The important thing is on which path you walk and who is with you, not on which floor you are going to reach."
He said, "With hard work, you will always reach where you want to go. I can speak without any fear that I have been able to reach the path and destination I dreamed of." His contract with Porto came to an end when the team defeated Benfica to win the Portuguese Cup. He did not play in this match but he celebrated with his teammates and also claimed the trophy.
Casillas played an important role in winning Spain the World Cup title and making it a two-time European champion. He was associated with the Real Madrid club at the age of just 9 years. He played 725 matches for the club in 16 seasons and achieved 19 titles. He played 167 matches for Spain and won the under-20 World Cup title.
